For Sale

October 29, 2014


Armco's revised drop-in/visiting hours are working well!  Wednesday from 1:00 to 3:00, at least for now, plus Saturday 9-12 and 1-3 gives us those times to visit, and talk.  It has turned out to be a highlight of my week.  As before if you're traveling through we can make other arrangements  :)  We still take a break from answering the phone on Tuesdays and Thursdays and that has really upped productivity, too!   Thanks, guys!!  (and ladies:)

We will also sell your handgun or long gun for a 15% commission (or $50, whichever is higher).  We need it here for inspection before accepting for sale.   Call or email for details.

You may notice the line-up below changes constantly.  Sales have been brisk and a lot of guns don't even make it to this page.   If you have a special item you are looking for, let me know and I'll contact you as soon as something likely shows up.  Well over half of the guns I get have a home already picked out :)

Click on images to enlarge - I usually have lots more pics of the guns below, so just ask!  AND trade-ins almost always welcome

Jean and I have decided it's time to cut back a little on shooting (and guns) so will be selling a few:  some tricked out revolvers, My slicked-up Tokarev,  a gorgeous Pietta 45 Colt tuned for Cowboy Action,  a lovely Browning Buckmark 22 (4" barrel), MAYBE Jean's 9x40 Open gun.......
Coming - (some pics on the Index page):  A very shiny, almost brand new, Kriss Vector 45,  Nickel Plated 44 Desert eagle, some very nice Webleys, including two WG's, a Beretta 45 six-shooter, a Colt original (Gold Cup) Mid range target pistol in 38 Special, a 455 Model 1917 S&W , CZ Tactical Sport, tricked out CZ SP01, lovely Model 17 S&W 22 (on hold, Josh)...Caspian custom 45 1911, Hi-Standard Victor... These are enroute here now, expected next week...


Here now, pics ASAP: KSG Keltec Bullpup 12 gauge shotgun, nice Remington 12 gauge single shot...



Restricted Handguns: 
This 45 Colt Pietta 1873 with 5.5" barrel was worked over by Clarence for me and is sooo smooth!  It also shoots really tight groups right at point of aim with my favourite load using 230 Grain lead 45 ACP bullets, and I always had lots of them.  Excellent with 265's as well, but about 1 1/4" high and left at 100 yards...  OK, OK, at 25 yards!.   $450, trades?  No tax on this one either  :)
A lovely Gen 3 Glock 22 in 40 S&W liber.  Night sights, 2 mags, original case and papers, less than a box of ammo fired - $699 - trades?
Here is an unfired Girsan 9mm (these are very well-built copies of the Beretta 92 series) with three mags and Beretta Presentation grips - $499 - trades?
A wonderful all- stainless-steel Sig P226 in 40 S&W caliber.  The recoil reduction, and faster follow-up shots is very noticeable.  Nice trigger,  good-feeling grip.  2 mags, case, what a nice-feeling pistol with that steel frame!  $941 - trades? 
This HK 45 Compact is all ready for an accessory with the threaded muzzle,  which also makes it legal in Canada  :)  Brand new unfired, this gun just did not fit the shooter's hand - two standard 8 round mags.   Gun and two mags - $1090 - extra mags - $70 each...Trades?
This is a real find! an immaculate AMT Hardballer 45 dating from the mid-'80's and completely original, box and all  :)  Appears test fired only, and this one is wonderfully tight (that means use a good lube :) oWNER FROM NEW CLAIMS THIS IS THE MAG IT CAME WITH, BUT i HAVE MY DOUBTS  :)  tRIGGER PULL IS VERY NICE - $899 - TRADES?
Here is a nice WW2 Walther P38 in 9mm  - one mag, bore very shootable but not shiny - $649 - trades?
Another as-new Norinco 1911A1 in 45.  Tuned and tightened here, this thing feels like a nicely broken-in Springfield, except with a better trigger feel  :)  Case, tools, 2 mags, one year warranty - $409 - trades?  No "Made in China" markings on this one, sorry!
This lovely Glock 22 Gen 3.5 has the RTF textured grip and special slide serrations.   Really feels good  :)  Very few rounds, 2 mags, case, tools etc.  $729 - trades?  Just try to find these!
Here's a Norinco 1911A1 in 45 that is used but not used :)  We got it on a trade, NIB, unfired, and tuned and tightened it here. One of the ones with no "China" markings whatever...Very slick and smooth - One year warranty of course - $419 - trades?
An as-new tuned STI Spartan lower - set up for 9mm (can be set up for 40 or 45)  Now $399 complete with slide stop and magazine ..
Saying this is special doesn't even start to do it justice.  I have never seen an example this nice of a 1903 Pocket Model Colt 38 "Rimless Smokeless" in a museum or book.  Also known as the Model 1903 Pocket Hammer .38, much scarcer than the 6" military models, this is a 4.5", made in 1917, with a shorter grip and magazine than the more common military model.  Has been fired, but likely less than a box, and handling wear is extremely light, with a perfect bore and internals.  Ammo - .38 ACP, NOT 38 Super - is still readily available..Now $2190 - trades welcome.
 Rimfire Handguns:
This Walther P22 in 22 LR is sooo cool!  The competition model with the "compensator", this one also has a special accurizing threaded collar on the barrel, as well as a fitted fake suppressor that actually feels pretty good  :)  3 Mags, Manual, case, all accessories - $399 - trades?
A lovely Ruger Mark III 22 Standard model with the long barrel.  Almost new, complete with case, paperwork 2 mags, locking key...$349 - trades?
Beretta News 22  - barely fired - $399 - trades?  I also have 4 extra factory mags (new $60) at $40 each  :)
This High Standard Dura-Matic 100 is in fantastic condition for a 1958 pistol.  This was not one of their really high-end target models but a very accurate, dependable plinker.  Made in Hamden, Connecticut, this is one of the good ones!  $349 - trades?
A NICE Ruger Mark 1 Standard 22 with the easy-to-hit-with 6 7/8" barrel.  One magazine - $279 - trades?
OK, now this is nice! - These are getting hard to come by in good used condition, and are very expensive new.  A Model 41 Smith, about twenty years old, so still built smooth and slick, with a fabulous trigger.  One magazine, lovely condition inside and out (nobody abuses these) - $990 - Trades? I have in all my years only met two people who could shoot as well as these pistols are capable of  :)  (before you ask, I wasn't one of them)
Lovely S&W Model 34 22LR "Kit Gun" so named for the Americans' popular carrying of them in their fishing tackle boxes (we never could in Canada  :)  These are getting rare!  A 4" prohib 12(6) gun  :(  now $319 - trades?
And this 4" Python is absolutely gorgeous - one-owner, unfired, original box and papers with the 1983 registration papers.  Has 2 pairs of Hogue exotic (Pao Ferro and Rosewood) grips and a rubber set (in case he ever decided to go shooting with it) as well as the mint factory ones, six HKS Speedloaders and the Safariland belt clips for them - $1790 - Trades? 
This Bernardelli Model 60 is a .32 (7.65) pocket pistol that's unfired - one mag, marvelous condition, comes with the best trigger pull I've ever felt on a pocket pistol!  $149 - trades?
 Some of my own - no tax... all these are 12(6) Prohibs...
And here's my 44 magnum 629 - 4" so prohib.  I have a lot of rounds on this one over the years (almost all lead bullet reloads at about 900 fps) and it ain't stock  :)  Very nice trigger, but not pushing it, so it still sets off hard primers, Millett rear sight, moon clipped and beveled, my favourite Pachmayr grips plus the stockers, a well-used shoulder holster  (Who, me?), three moon clips - no tax - $700 - trades?  Sold, Rob  :)
This is a lovely 380 Beretta Model 1934 that I had Jim Ford restore for me a while back  because I am fascinated by 380's - and because this Beretta fits my hand so well.  Shoots great, looks good, not original, but so what? I hear Mussolini used to own this one - well, one like it  :)  now $250 no tax  :)
This is a Star Model SI in .32 (7.65) and its holster, second magazine, and locked-breech (miniature 1911) action is a joy to shoot.  All-steel and very well made, not one of the potmetal pistols so common...$349 - trades?
These Basque autos are Spanish-made and actually shoot rather well.  I used to own a .32 many years ago and recall it as being a decent shooter.  Not of the same quality as a PPK, naturally, but very usable.  This one is in .380 and is a little more serious than the .32's. Box, 2 $149 - Trades? 


MAB Modele R - a 32acp French pistol very close to the Model D that is the common civilian version, but patterned more for military use, with an exposed hammer and lanyard ring.  Very few of these were made as the army went to 9mm,  and today it is much rarer than the D series..small crack in the right grip by the top screw, lovely bore and internals  Now $199 - no tax 
I'm looking for more 22 rifles like this Cooey Model 75- for a local summer camp shooting program.  Anyone wants to add rifle shooting to youngsters' canoeing and campfire building skills, I'm all for it!  These will be donated, so please don't expect me to pay a lot :)  Cooey single shot 22's preferred as then the training is simplified...  I will accept basket cases for parts as well... Hurray - now have 3!
This is a very unique Kel-Tec KSG  pump action shotgun.  12 gauge x 3" (or 2 3/4" of course) Capacity is 12 + 1 rounds of 3", a compact bullpup design that feels pretty user-friendly.  This one has the forward pistol grip which makes operation so much nicer (these should however be securely mounted, preferably so they can't slide off the front) - barely fired, factory box, manual - $990 - trades?  
OK, here's my pride and joy - my Savage-based custom 1000 yard gun.  27" Krieger barrel, Custom-fitted laminated stock, left hand oversize bolt handle (I shoot right handed but prefer to work the bolt left-handed, keeping my grip intact), almost brand new Swarovski 6-24 scope in tactical rings, wonderful trigger, Stony Point OAL gauge, Redding competition die set ($300), lots of Lapua brass,  Sierra 142 grain Match kings, Other assorted match bullets, everything but powder (H1000) and primers - and if you're local, we can talk about that  :)$2490 - no Tax.  Or would sell scope and rifle separately - $1400/1300...
Here is a really nice Chinese SKS - tricked out with scope and mount, bipod, sling, magazine conversion, nice folding stock.  Bore is lovely - I bought all his ammo, and there's only a couple hundred rounds missing from the case...$419 - trades?
Mossberg Model 715T - a 22LR AR15 look-alike that seems to b e working very well.  Non-restricted, too!  Few rounds fired, nice condition - $249 - trades?
This is a lovely Bushmaster XM-15 in 223 from before the Remington take-over. Very nice trigger, sling, ,manual, case, 2 mags, the bolt locking lugs show so little wear, I'd say a box or two at most has passed through this one. $1249 - trades?
This Vostok 22 single shot target 22 is so neat - perfectly balanced, fantastic sights, very nice trigger.  World-class wood - well not really  :)  In the Communist era, they cared about performance, not looks - and does it ever perform!  Manual, sight inserts, perfect bore and innards.  Show your buddy his Anschutz isn't the only game in town  :)  $299-trades?
Now this is really gorgeous!  A Sako 85L Bavarian in 7mm Magnum with a breath-taking piece of wood and Sako's usual smooth action and flawless metal work.  The scope is a Zeiss Conquest HD5 in 2-10X42 in $180 worth of Sako Opti-lock bases and rings - wow! That is some scope, with an unmatched spread of magnification and a crystal-clear view.   $2690 - Trades?   Or $1890 without scope.

A mint unfired John Rigby 275 Model 98 Sporter, complete with the best QD claw mounts made (worth a small fortune alone).  This rifle is gorgeous (and should be for the over $9000 retail price).  Now $6990 - Trades welcome..

12(5) Dae Woo Max II in 5.56 (223)  $899 - trades?  These rifles are in my estimation superbly engineered and built, much better quality than either the M16 or AK47/74 of its era.  Takes AR mags, the folder is solid and easy to use, sights very usable, better ergonomics than any of the popular ones today - too bad it's a 12(5) prohib!!
Remember those gorgeous little Browning Semi-automatic 22 rifles? This one is a Norinco one and actually pretty nice!  I've used these for parts for a broken Belgian one, too!  $169 - Trades?
This is very rare - an unfired Lakefield single-shot 22.  Perfect for training youngsters - such a difference from the plastic ones available today - $249 - trades?
Now this is rare - and nice!  A Remington Model 4 Rolling Block take-down model in 25 rimfire - my very first real rifle was a Stevens Favorite in 25!  Expensive to shoot compared to the 22's, even in 1954  :)  I learned to make every shot count!  This one is the "Boy's Rifle" and would be very shootable for someone with a few boxes of ammo stashed away  :) $990 - trades?    Now $700 - no tax,  includes 100 rds ammo worth $200.

The parts only - no receiver  :(   This is one of the AP-80 22LR AK47 look-alikes that the RC MP says are prohibs.  If they want the receiver, fine, but they're only getting that  :)   It was registered as non-restricted and they can't put it into 12(5), although they won't leave it as non-restricted either.    HMMM.       I want $200 for all but the receiver - would make a great Krinker Plinker.  I'm sure you can figure out how to mount the pieces on your 10-22...

"Lovely" accurately describes this Model 17-4 Smith & Wesson 22 (Short, Long and LR) revolver.  I used one of these with 22 Shorts to get my grand-daughters started many years ago.  Felt like an air pistol for recoil (Recoil, what recoil?)  and was very quiet - still used muffs of course -  AND the accuracy was superb!   They loved it  :)  This one is better yet  :)   $699 - trades?  Sold - Gord  :)
